For one weekend, the Hult Center will be transformed into Never Never Land. Channel your inner child (or fairy or pirate) because Eugene Ballet Company is performing Peter Pan, with choreography by Bruce Steivel, 7:30 pm Oct. 5 and 2 pm Oct. 6. Want to feel like an insider and not a “lost boy?” EBC Director Toni Pimble will give a Ballet Insider talk 45 minutes before each performance in The Studio of Hult’s lower level. 

Do you like big, juicy burgers? How about a Twinkie? Unless you have a stomach and mind of steel, Forks Over Knives will dull those cravings with its investigative study into the link between degenerative diseases and animal-based and processed foods. The Bijou (on 13th) will screen the food doc as part of the monthly Encircle Documentary Film Series at 5 and 7:30 pm Oct. 3.

Slug Queen Professor Doctor Mildred Slugwalk Dresselhaus hosts October’s First Friday ArtWalk, which kicks off at 5:30 pm at Oregon Art Supply, where the beautifully intricate drawings of Sarah Morejohn and the natural landscapes of Shannon Sullivan will be on display. Don’t miss: the Fauve-like landscapes of Barbara Weinstein at Eugene Healing Arts Center; the colorful surrealist paintings of Richard Quigley at New Odyssey Juice and Java; the Annual Gallery Artist Show at White Lotus Gallery.

Got moves like Lady Gaga, Beyoncé or Michael Jackson? The hip-hop Work Dance Company is holding its annual open auditions 6 to 7:30 pm Oct. 6 at the YMCA. For more info, visit workdancecompany.com.
